All In A Days Work

Have you ever wanted an item of clothing so bad you were willing to drive 40 miles round trip to get it? No- oh that’s just me… Well this is how the story goes: Girl walks in to J.Crew with one Elizabeth & James blouse, Girl covets said blouse. I go online see it is sold out on Nordstrom’s and still $230+ on other sites. Go to Nordstrom to try to locate it, it’s been “racked”. Locate THE LAST SMALL IN ALL OF NORDSTROMS at Topanga’s Nordstrom Rack. She drives her little caboose up there so fast (but still drive the speed limit) and frantically and successfully tracks down the blouse. Bonus: The blouse which has tiny dice on it was marked down to $74.95. Win.

Blouse: Elizabeth & James Blazer: Nordstrom Bottoms: Madewell Wedges: J.Crew Tote: Rebecca Minkoff

This is one of my favorite style of tops, the tie is so reminiscent of a more simple time where women left their decolletage to the imagination if you know what I mean! I don’t generally get to sport an outfit that isn’t solely comprised from J.Crew so I jumped to document it. I’d love to post some cute outfits more frequently.

What items are you lusting after this spring? Colored denim, bold prints, & sherbert colors are catching my eye the most!

Snow Day- Shop Day!

IT’S A SNOW DAY!

You know what that means? No work! Since the university closed I didn’t have to go to my office job so I got to be snowed in all day with my boyfriend and his family. Don’t get my wrong there was a lot of shoveling to do and cocoa to be drank.

Since you surely caught up on all of your other work here is some reading to peruse for the rest of the snow day.

This Refinery 29 article about 2011 legging fashion trends. Currently I am just going to get some plain black ones (ones pictured are from Victoria’s Secret), while all those ones look fun, they are not practical for my uses currently and no one has invited me to any fashion shows yet.

This Blogging for Daters article by my friend over at Dear Winnie. It’s nice when bloggers are so welcoming AND helpful. Chelsea is my blogging fairy godmother.

This article on Stylish Thought I found today. A gem of a find I might add, this blogger adds a little inspiration to her fashion blogging. The article is dealing with a lot of my recent fashion issues, lest I remind you of the fit-of-rage-clothes-throwing episode?

This article rounding up the top IPhone cases from At First Blush! I must admit I have been lusting after one since day one, but it was never worth switching to the horrible AT&T service we have here. Mine would for sure be donning the Kate Spade retro telephone one!

Well there you have it! I did some online shopping today, thank you Urban Outfitters for the discount code today (valid until 3am, you still have time!) I bought myself a lovely coat. How did you spend your snow day? Stay warm!
